The CF Dick Hall would later pitch against the Reds in the 1970 World Series. According to Retrosheet it looks like he was a full time everyday player up until the 1955 season when he converted to pitcher. Not many can make the switch from everyday player to pitcher in the big leagues. The other way seems to be the way most do it.
